AUSTIN, Texas, Oct. 1, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — SmallCapVoice.com, Inc. today announced it conducted a new audio interview with PositiveID Corporation (“PositiveID” or the “Company”) (OTCQB:PSID), a developer of biological detection and diagnostics solutions. In the interview, which can be heard at http://smallcapvoice.com/blog/10-1-14-smallcapvoice-interview-with-positiveid-corporation-psid, PositiveID’s President Lyle L. Probst discusses how the Company’s Firefly Dx real-time PCR (polymerase chain reaction) testing system could be used to prevent the spread of outbreaks such as Ebola.
“The goal of Firefly is to accurately detect pathogens at the point of need or point of sampling within minutes, thereby eliminating the need to send a sample to a lab and wait hours or even days for test results,” commented Probst. “With Firefly we hope to effectively stop the pandemic spread of diseases like Ebola.”
PositiveID’s Firefly Dx is a point-of-need, handheld system designed to deliver molecular diagnostic results using real-time PCR chemistry. Firefly is being developed to meet the growing need for more rapid and accurate point-of-need diagnostics that will enable hospitals, physicians, military personnel, and others to save lives. Firefly is designed to derive results from a sample in less than 20 minutes, at the point of need, compared to two to four hours for a lab device, which would enable accurate diagnostics leading to more rapid and effective treatment than what is currently available with existing systems.
